More of a perennial favorite than a new trend, the off-the-shoulder look is only getting better. Evoke a classic Hollywood vibe with Afton or Zulani by Maggie Sottero.
Simple satin wedding dresses, elegant chiffon skirts, clean silhouettes… the latest minimalist gowns are anything but boring. Ditch the frills with pretty ballgown Anita (Maggie Sottero), or the classic styling of Linda (Rebecca Ingram).
Feminine and alluring, crisscross straps are the perfect finish to an open-back gown. Take advantage of this flattering trend with Bristol (Sottero and Midgley) and Marjorie (Rebecca Ingram).
Low Back + Illusion
Understated yet sensual, these low-back gowns opt for illusion accents and distinctive lace details. Sottero and Midgley’s Mattea and Maggie Sottero’s Nola are classic fit-and-flares with an unexpectedly cool twist.
Intrigued? We don’t blame you! Suzanne by Sottero and Midgley features laser-cut lace and textured netting, layered over the comfiest, most luxurious jersey you’ll ever slip into—we promise.
Strategically Placed Details
Get coverage in all the right places with Blanche by Maggie Sottero, featuring beaded lace appliques over an illusion bodice and illusion long sleeves. Hoping for a little less nude? Delicate floral lace shimmers along the plunging neckline and illusion off-the-shoulder sleeves in Shae (Maggie Sottero).
For when it’s business at the ceremony, party at the reception—romantic Hudson Marie (Maggie Sottero) and vintage-inspired Annika Leigh (Sottero and Midgley) are perfect for your next-level nuptials.
Statement backs are one thing, but how about a statement train? Odette by Maggie Sottero features striking cutouts comprised of illusion lace appliques and embroidered accents. And for the chic and trendsetting bride, Bristol by Sottero and Midgley showcases a petal-shaped hemline trimmed in lace appliques.
